    kidatheart: I'm confused. When you were actually offered a job, pending the criminal background check?

    Montana gem, I'm in the same boat you are in. I have to support my two children on my own but I decided I wanted to be a teacher before then. I guess I'm a career changer. I have a bachelors degree in criminal justice administration but I never worked in that field. I realized I wanted to be a teacher when I was almost done with that degree. When I heard about alternative certification I got very excited and signed up. I feel like teaching is my calling and that's what I want to do. I have been a sub for about seven months and a personal tutor.

    i have been employed as a teacher since i first graduated, four years ago. the problem is that i've never had the job i really wanted; therefore, every year i look. up to this point i've been a head start teacher, taught at a very tough, innner city charter sch., and now work at an "urban" (inner city but not near as bad as the prev. one) charter sch. i am happy to be utilizing my skills (i know a lot of people can't find anything), but really want that dream job :). i don't think i'll give up until i find it. so that's MY story!!

    I was hired as an Instructional Aide, filled out all the paperwork and did the fingerprinting, but never received the certificate that shows my record is clean... Finally in May I received it.
